LibriVox recording of Quo Vadis, by Henryk Sienkiewicz.
Read by David Leeson.

Sienkiewicz’s epic novel of ancient Rome finds the Empire at the height of her power and splendor, but struggling with the madness and cruelty of the Emperor Nero. A new religion is sweeping across the world, causing many Romans to wonder and leading many others to sacrifice everything for it. Yet, even as a great city burns and darkness threatens to overwhelm the age, hope is found in the love of the Roman tribune Marcus Vinicius for the beautiful Christian maiden Lygia, and in his journey toward his life’s true purpose (Introduction by D. Leeson).

Subject: An Amazing Epic
The author's descriptive power transports the reader to First Century Rome in the days of Nero. It is an unforgettable journey.

I am very grateful to David Leeson for undertaking this project. With the many monologues the audio book could have been rendered tedious in less-capable hands.

Thank you!

Subject: Captivating view of 1st Century Rome
This story brought Rome to life for me. From the Emperor and the political intrigue that surrounds him to the lowest slaves, real people are drawn in real life situations. Sienkiewincz' characters have real depth and color - you can almost see them march off the page! It was troubling to listen to the scenes in the forum, but also inspiring to imagine how the early Christians faced such persecution.

David did an excellent job of reading this book. He uses distinctive voices for the main characters which helped me follow the story when all the Roman names got a bit confusing. I could hear those characters speaking those lines, filled with passion, or hate or sorrow. It brought another level of depth to the story.

Protestant listeners will note that the author has a clear tilt in favor of Catholicism in his story telling and uses his novel to build up the argument for the supremacy of the Church of Rome. That in no way takes away from the effectiveness of the story in portraying the power of the gospel to transform the lives of believers within a decadent and debased society.
